I would like to add:

We urgently need better visibility of docs specifically on getfedora Fedora 36

As I stated in the thread, I found by chance that the proposal is already there for IoT. So is should be doable for Server and for the docs page on the getfedora landing page as well. But for Server Edition I would prefer a link to ask.fedora instead of the mailing list (the entry in the middle of the sub-footer). And for docs we should use the docs landing page, ask.fedora and discourse channel.

Additionally, we should insert that sub-footer onto the direct download pages as well.

For Workstation Edition, there is currently no documentation available, as far as I know. So we can’t implement that link for them at the moment. But hopefully, for release 37.

And additionally, on the Server Download page we have to remove the subfooter with cloud. Server and Cloud have nothing to do wich other anymore. It is missleading that way. Instead we need the subfooter about support resources.

We can add that, but I’m not sure what we need to discuss. It sounds like we just need someone to make the appropriate pull requests?

Maybe, someone has a different opinion, overall or in detail. And we should have a decision of the team, so that the importance is clear. And then we need to clarify who does what.

Who does the Iot modifications? Who is doing the F36 updates? Could they do the 2sub-footer" as well?

Minutes and full logs are available on Meetbot.

This might be less an issue for internal discussions within docs, but an external one.

Especially the latter indicates that there is already something new in development. The suggestion about the docs could be forwarded to the responsible team for consideration?

I suppose, you refer to the web site revamp project. It’s currently busy with the edition pages. It will take some time to get to the docs pages. But the docs pages are certainly not ignored or forgotten.
